I'm going to veterinary school, and I do not believe in grains since my total paleo success. The problems must be amplified for dogs/cats. Lately (as I'm a veterinary technician now!), I hear the vet refer to a cat who vomits, has sores in it's... (more)
Recently I read an article suggesting that dogs may have helped modern humans out-compete neanderthals. I eat up stories about neanderthals and their demise. If there's a dog loving gene, I don't have it. I am most definitely not a dog person. I... (more)
Or at least why doesn't the meat from other meat-eaters (carnivores or omnivores) feature very heavily in modern day diets? Is eating carnivores Paleo? Off the top of my head I think of dogs (Koreans) and snakes (in parts of the mid-west and... (more)
Have there been decent studies about what commercial dog food products produces the healthiest dogs? Or pet food for other pets? Does anyone know of generic commercial dog food that wold appear healthy (according to 'paleo' standards)? Would it... (more)
We just purchased a Lab and I haven't owned a dog since I switched to a Paleo lifestyle. After reading many of the posts on here regarding raw food diets for dogs, I am a believer. First of all, thanks to everyone for such good info. We pick up... (more)
You should go cold turkey. Don't mix kibble with the boney meal as there is a digestion time difference. Nothing needs to be frozen to kill parasites. You can't just feed boney meals (necks, backs etc), offal and eggs. They don't need much offal.... (more)
About three months ago my 72lb lab was diagnosed with diabetes. We tried the cheaper Science diet but his blood glucose didn't do well on it. Then switched permanently to Royal Canin HF which is their dry diabetic food. We feed him 2.5 cups twice... (more)

I recently lost my dog to a genetic disease. She was fed 'good quality' kibble from the vet. A friend has a friend who is a geneticist at Lincoln Uni, who is expecting puppies next week. Labradoodles. He has apparently gone to great lengths to... (more)
I know dogs are not people, but I figured it cannot hurt to ask... I have a 13 year old dog who has been super hungry for the past three years (all tests/bloodwork/thyroid are normal..spent a fortune at the vet). Reading all the human posts, I... (more)
Hey guys, haven't posted for awhile. Anyways, I'm tired of seeing my dog with the runs and not feeling well, he is a great dog and doesn't deserve that. Currently I'm feeding him "organic salmon" based dry food. Which is probably garbage. I've... (more)
I simply can't afford to go to a vet to have them charge me a fortune for a visit so maybe someone else could help. He is constantly biting his behind because it itches and he has some scabs from doing so. It comes and goes week by week and I'm... (more)
I went overseas for a year, I think my dog was stressed about being home alone (was with my Mom but alone during the day) and he didn't eat the greatest dog food (it contained grains). He was fine when I left and then his health dramatically... (more)
